    My go-to glass would probably be my Kuhnhenn tulip. The only exception would probably be sour ales. Oh and hefewiezens. I love to bring out a big hefe glass and indulge from time to time.

    If the occasion is particularly special, I will go with my Orval goblet. I picked that one up right at the monastery and I managed to get it home safely. Anyone familiar with the thin glass on the Orval goblet will appreciate this achievement. I just know that someday I will break it in the dumbest possible way right here in the comfort of my own home, after managing to take it halfway around the planet. But yes, that would be my favorite. Kuhnhenn would be my MVP.

    I try to always drink from brewery specific glass, I also own way too much glassware, yet also not enough glassware...

    I have the Libby craft beer set, but I haven't opened it yet. A basic pint in 20 oz and 16 oz and oversized wine glass. They seem to work for what I've been drinking.

    Mikasa tulip/snifer. I have dozens of pint glasses, family hand-painted pilsners, and so on and so on, but I always use my plain, no design tulip.

    The Spiegelau is like the glass isn't even there, eh? Santa brought me some...bummed because the tulip was out of stock, but should be showing up any day. The lager glass is perfect for Jacks Abby. Not obsessed with it...will still turn to the SA perfect pint, but the Spiegelau stuff is sweet!

    The one I use most often is my specialty Dogfish Head glass, but for Imperial/Double IPAs and Imperial Stouts I use a Catawba Valley snifter and for Belgian Ales I use my Duvel tulip glass.

    I usually use a snifter when I am tasting a beer for the first time, but for everyday drinking I usually use pint glasses. I don't know why, but I usually prefer pint glasses over stemware. Just what I'm used to, I guess.

    Right now it's my Pipeworks tulip, but usually it's just any snifter.

    Depends on what I'm drinking. I find my New Belgium globes the most universal, but I rotate between a few others.

    Deschutes snifter
    Russian River stem
    Ommegang tulip

    [​IMG]My Sierra Nevada Imperial Hop Etched glass is almost the only glass I use. Holds 20 ounces which comfortably holds a carefully poured Surly. The etched hop on the bottom creates lots of extra bubbles. And if your drinking 12 ounce bottles you only have to kill 4 ounces before its full.

    I tend to buy a lot of glasses from different breweries, and then use my $1 tulip from a Dollar Tree store most of the time. If it breaks, it only costs $1 to replace.

    I have a Unibrau Maudite tulip I use a lot. Also a NERAX nonic Inperial pint I use pretty frequently, along with a couple other types. I have a ton of glassware, though unfortunately, i don't have space to have most of them out now. I keep out a half dozen or so shaker pints, mostly for water and soda, and the above, along with a few Duvel tulips and a couple others, that I use for beer.

    I usually pick my Tony's glass I got from Tony's Darts Away's 2nd Anniversary. It's like a miniature tulip/snifter. I like the amount that fits in it and the shape.

    Pretty much every glass I own I get for free usually with a "buy the beer keep the glass" deal

    unibroue tulip

    Pretty much fits every beer, always has the best head and it looks fancy as shit. Even priced at more than 7+dollars

    Samuel Smith pint glass

    Second glass I use the most. Fits even more beer most of a bomber.

    New Castle brown glass

    I can thank BA for this since they let me know of this deal. Didn't cost me any purchase either since it was a print online thing with just the cost of a stamp and envelope.

    I have more glasses but use these 3 the most.
